Oral Pyogenic Granuloma: A Case Report and a Comprehensive Review

Dr Manjeet Singh

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is considered a reactive tumor like lesion seen in the oral cavity caused due to low-grade local irritation, traumatic injury, or hormonal factors. It occurs most commonly in the gingiva, and also lips, tongue and buccal mucosa are the other common sites. The present case reports a localized inflammatory hyperplasia of the maxillary gingiva of a 29 year-old female patient which was interfering with occlusion. Excisional biopsy of the lesion revealed findings suggestive of PG. The patient showed no sign of recurrence in a 6 months follow-up. This article seeks to give a comprehensive review of oral PG with its etiology, clinical features, treatment, and multiple differential diagnoses.
